About the Album Super Killer Fragile & the Band Rift

“Super Killer Fragile” is the debut album by British thrash metal band Rift. Not much is known about this band that I happened to stumble upon thanks so much to YouTube! The album is highly melodic and creative thrash metal that is similar to Germany’s Kreator.

The First Song That I Reviewed Is

"The Day the Sky Exploded” is sounding a bit like British grindcore band Carcass before the melody kicks in. Is it going to be the end of the world as we know it? Let’s hope that this is not the case as the band brings attention to the subject of the world being in danger because of human selfishness and greed.


How Does the Album Super Killer Fragile Begin?

March of Nimrod has much narration including a spoken part by current US President Donald Trump. But then, the real fun begins with this album as the song “Abomination of Desolation” brings to awareness the sins of mankind and because of this, humans must die and go back to dust. Was the fall of man complete when Judas lied? That can be debated for much time but as for the song, it is good with good lead guitar work. For those of you that enjoyed the work of thrash metal band Acid Reign with its punk style thrash, Rift offers a more modern and melodic form of thrash metal.

Super Killer Fragile: the Other Songs

Diminish is a song about the cancer that seems to be eating us alive and that is human greed and selfishness. Defense contractors stay silent as the arms race is resumed. “Ghosts From the Ruins” lyrically is the same as so many other thrash metal bands that have covered politics and social issues over the years. The song metaphorically is trying to say that since people are so badly affected by the horrible choices of politicians, it is like their lives are ruined and it seems like they are powerless to change the situations that they are in. But the riffing is in one word: spectacular! “Free Speech Talking” has a good repeating three word phrase as these British guys show that they can play and sing at the same time. The song talks about what happens in a society when there are different viewpoints as some people are silenced if they oppose the other side. “Fear God” is a kind of satirical look at how we should fear God. The song says to get down on our knees and pray to the Creator of this world.

A Special Comment About the Album Super Killer Fragile & the British Heavy Metal Scene

Stylistically, Super Killer Fragile is one of those albums that have a modern sound along with creative solos and that’s always going to be a winning combination. For all the negative publicity that the United Kingdom receives because of its politics, the one thing that is hard to criticize about the UK is the thrash metal scene. It may not be as good of a thrash metal scene as Germany but British musicians can also play heavy metal very well.
